What target did you use on that board?
Edit: found it, yet another SPRF3 clone...
Thanks. It took me some searching to find out the proper wiring, so I figured I post it for anyone else wiring up a buzzer on that board... plus I figure I should record it before I forget too.

Awesome, for you!
So how does one get into the testing market?

I've got video editing abilities and love tweaking with drones.
Looks like providing good support on the forums is a start.
Would it help if I started releasing reviews of the equipment I buy too?
I was really hoping to review the ER250 Pro.
Any tip FyreSG?

Just wondering if you guys have heard about this issue that I'm having.

I purchased the 1st & 2nd version of the 250 Racer, I only recently started flying them. (I'm a little slow to start).

They both fly fine for a while, and if I do some abrupt maneuvers it seems the flight controller locks out, and will not stabilze the quad any more. Doesn't matter what mode its in. Will fly correctly again after I reset the quad by unplugging the battery.

Had a few large crashes due to this problem.

I'm running Open Flight 020215 firmware or something with CCD3 board. Haven't played with the PID's as they seem to be good straight from the installation.

Anyone else experience this and if so what was/is the suggested solution to fix it.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Nigel.

That was a common problem on those boards back then I haven't heard much about it lately but that's probably because mostly everyone is flying newer boards now... the only solution to ever really worked for me was upgrading the board

Some things to try would be upgrade to betaflight.. and lower level strength on the PID tuning page

Thanks for the information.

I have a brand new one as well which I just started flying, hopefully this will prove the theory.

Hey,

Just start with the products you own and borrow from friends. Then you have something to let Banggood know that you can do reviews.

I have one on the way as well and will do a full review when it comes.

Honestly, I'm surprised they brought this one back. I thought it was dead.

Has Jim completed his selection of reviewers, or is there room for more?



I'd love to compare against my Black Dragon Zeemer build from back when... I'm planning to upgrade to an F3 or F4 FC anyways, as I have to tear it down after a debilitating crash.

A little upgrade update... I gave up on the stock ESC's when I couldn't find a local ftdi programmer to duplicate Fyre SG's process for flashing to Blheli .

Fortunately, I had some proprietary Flycolor 30 amp ESC's off my Shuriken X1 available. I've got them running oneshot 125. Unfortunately, I still can't get the blheli pass through to work, but I do have a much smoother quad rocking Betaflight 3.1.7 on the original CC3D FC.

You have to show them you have what it takes to review products. Yes, showing your knowledge and your ability to help others will be a huge advantage because they know that their products will be in good hands rather than someone who just wants a free toy. Also, upload good-quality videos (which means you need to have some products on hand) to show the sellers that you can get lots of viewers. If you have a huge subscriber base, that'll a definitely cement you the opportunity as a reviewer.

As compared to the reviewers out there, I'm only considered average or even below-average. I guess they picked me because I am able to converse comfortably with them in their native language, on product faults, improvements, trends, etc, and at the same time experience no miscommunication.
